So, here are Sunday's results (12 February 2017)...

Blackburn must be at least odds on for the Northern title, having added a 5-1 thrashing of second-placed Middlesbrough to their already strong position. Ellie Stewart's first goal for the club was added to by Ella Toone and Faye McCoy before Emma Foster pulled one back. Lynda Shepherd and Natasha Fenton then both struck to seal the points.  ...

 Southern Division - Spurs take advantage of Charlton checking Cardiff progress

Tottenham resumed the Southern leadership with a 2-0 result against Lewes, Wendy Martin bagging a brace. Breaking the deadlock at the second attempt on 34 minutes, Martin got the second with 5 minutes to go, flicking home Jenna Schillaci's inswinging corner.

A 1-0 win for Blackburn against Fylde on that night. (And Cheltenham won.)

Blackburn aren't in action today, but they could still make a significant step towards the promotion play-off:

Middlesbrough's very slim chances of catching Northern leaders Blackburn will be all but mathematically over if they do not win at West Brom. ...

Either Charlton or Coventry could take over at the top of the Southern. While the Addicks are at basement side QPR, United take on Lewes

Swindon and West Ham have an important clash, as with five games to go, both sit just a point off the bottom.
